“Traveling with dogs ”
Review of Willow Creek Trail

Reviewed 9 October 2017 via mobile

This hike is phase between moderate to difficult depending on how fit are you. Some path are challenging with some rocks climbing and waterfalls. Be prepared to get wet as you can swim there.

We hike with our dogs which is great for them to hike and swim together.

My wife, adult daughter and I stayed at Bass Lake the end of June, early July to visit Yosemite. A couple of days though we decided to forgo the drive to go on some local hikes. Willow Creek is about 2.5 miles long and I would rate it moderate. My wife and I are middle aged and are in average shape although we have bad feet, knees and back but we were able to do the hike. There is a small parking lot on Road 274 but the trailhead is down the street where you see the creek. There are no markings or signs and frankly we lost the trail a couple of times. We often relied on the kindness of strangers who set us right. We were glad we stuck with it. We arrived at Angel Falls, where the creek shoots, drops and meanders over huge rocks. Pockets in the rocks make for swimming holes from tiny to huge. We took off our shoes and socks and stuck our feet in the cold rushing water. We watched locals as they jumped and swam in the bigger pools. On our way back we could easily see where we had made mistakes walking in. It was a great hike and Angel Falls was like something you only read about. We had a great day.

Moderate hike with many areas to stop and get wet. We hiked three miles to an area where we could sit by the water and actually get in safely. Bring your bug spray and something to cover your face because gnats are swarming everywhere except right next to the water. The hike is pretty hot during the summer so the water is refreshing but be prepared with lots of water and proper sun protection. There are unsafe areas around the falls and this is posted on signs near the start of the hike.
